SIBS Looking Forward: Transition Retreat is a weekend where individuals with disabilities (ages 17-22) and their siblings (ages 15-25) can explore transition topics and enjoy time together. The retreat will be held this year at YMCA Camp Wilson in Bellefontaine, Ohio on April 4-6, 2014. Participants have the opportunity to learn about the transition process, get to know their sibling better, and develop self-awareness and confidence about the future. Siblings pairs are asked to donate $50/each to help offset the cost of the weekend, but any additional donation would be appreciated. We hope you will be able to join us for this fun and informative weekend! For more information and to register please contact Nichele Lyndes at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children, announces the release of Memorandum 2014-1 Documentation of English Language Arts Assessment Accommodations on IEP and 504 Plans. This memorandum references the recently released FAQ on read aloud accommodations for state assessments and the new IEP or 504 Plan Decision-Making Tool. The IEP or 504 Plan Decision-Making Tool is not a required form.  However the tool contains required guidelines and will assist teams in making data-based decisions about the use of read aloud accommodations for statewide testing by students with disabilities.
